what's on this long weekend.....

First up is a very exciting helicopter ride around the peninsula for me...
All the details and story to follow next.

But more importantly, for those of you who arent leaving the beautiful mother city for a weekend in some-off-the-radar-small-town-just-to-get-away, then do show your support to those running the Two Oceans marathon on Saturday. I'll be there waiting for two sweaty (sexy) friends of mine to finish the half.
I must say, I may just do a fun run, this one particularly caught my eye just because of the absurd humour:
'56 m Nappy Dash - for kids younger than 3 years (must be able to walk)'
funny right?
My Runner's World Friends tell me there is usually an awesome after party at Forries (Newlands).

For music lovers, go immerse yourself in the world of sexy jazz music at the International Jazz festival. Weekend Pass: R485; Day Pass: R330; Rosies Tickets: R25 per performance.
There will be food stalls and other textile stores around. It can be a bit crazy though, so come well prepared.
Attendance figures have increased from the initial 14 000 to 32 000 in the last ten years. 3-4 April at the CTICC.

There is also the Champagne and Oyster Festival at Bloemendal wine estate on Sunday. it's a great excuse to sluuurp down some bubbles and eat juicy oysters (mind you the oysters weren't that fabulous last year). There is a wide variety of music entertainment throughout the day in a really stunning setting (great for the whole family - if you must bring tant Marie and Cobus jnr along). R70 for adults, kids for free... book your tickets at
